Not quite 5 stars

As a trained nurse I know they should not have already drawn up my vaccination before I got to the station. Apart from that it was ok, but strange how I was consented but as I was there guess that was ok. But people vaccinating should follow the rules.

good quick service

Excellent service, so well organised

I had an appointment booked, walked into the stadium, no queue, went forwarded for vaccination by a very pleasant nurse. Painless and easy. Waited the 15 minutes and then home. Given an appointment for 11 weeks later and had the same experience. Well done to all working there for giving their time and expertise to get this done

Wrongly recorded as having had Pfizer vaccine

I attended Widnes Stadium for second covid vaccine following call from GP surgery. Due to masks I nearly missed the word 'Pfizer' from the person checking my details, so came very close to having the wrong vaccine. I was advised to return at 10.30am next day which I did. Whilst waiting outside a woman stopped her car and asked if I was there for the vaccine then told me they didn't open until 12 noon. I told her I had been the previous day and been advised to return at 10.30am that day, she said she had been told the same. I returned at 12 but given the size of the queue I left.
I then went to Appleton Vaccine Centre where they told me I wasn't due for my second vaccine for another 2 weeks, which begs the question "Why did I get the call for an appointment from my GP surgery?"
Just one error after another which would have been very stressful if I had mobility issues.

Great serviive

Not as good as first jab

Staff looked tired and frazzled.
Had to wait in a queue and felt other people not far enough away from me
Thankful for being vaccinated but worried about the staff and how tired they clearly are.

Second Jab Done

Can’t tell you why I didn’t give 5 stars but guess staff probably exhausted doing this and their normal jobs too. Took my elderly mum and she said the same as me. Something just not right.

Not quite right

Admin for appointment disappointing. Vaccination itself fine when eventually got it.

Attended first appointment no problems, returned today for my second vaccine, after queueing I was told I have no appointment booked, even when I had a card with my with my appointment printed on that THEY had given to me. So I was then told there was not enough vaccines, telling the truth in the first place would have been the right thing to do instead of making out, I had no appointment. I can appreciate that there was a vaccine shortage but a phone call to cancel my appointment would have been courteous when I had arranged time off work and travelled on public transport to get there. Appears I wasn't the only one who encountered this problem, a few annoyed people leaving the building saying they had been told they had no appointment when they clearly did, including some elderly people for whom travelling had been difficult. Told to come back next week, booked in once again fingers crossed I will recieve my vaccination.
